I find nineteen here on the man would nice to see let's talk more about high school bullies. This national signing day. Changing image viewer billion covers this stuff closely and he joins us now poised to an engine sounds like Oregon really had a day. There's a lot of high ape but now that the letters are in. How did Willie Taggart and his staff did. And it out in the rubble skeleton creek course seven did. I like Gwinnett took over to jump in and finish the popped when he collapsed and I'm out seven. It absolutely exceptional. It's really hard recruiting at much you can help facility that much should consult flash. At the end of the day it's about relationships and Willie was able to go we could use some of those relation he dealt with fortitude to bring it six or seven order athlete. But the real damage they it would be California because Muqtada Al last year organ could not land a single player. In the top 45. In the state of California be sure they went six or seven including the headliner of the class. The nation's number one athlete yeah commodore what dork who would the last committed that day big splash org and really really an impressive job coach. Number one athlete what. I mean where will he play well positioned. Either the quarter he probably one of the top two retreat corners. I mean not the number one prospect in the country and what athlete you'd like. Just outside the top fifty nationally. What would absolutely a lock down corner of the US army all American bowl. Against fellow foreign fighters start to have achieved the entire. You open final and thank you world headquarters this summer. That content wasn't considered a prop under prospect. I had him jotted down the number you're number three quarter that I saw. I thought he did there to be at forty player nationally. Big time talent as I indicated that had offers from you know Alabama. State Oklahoma LSU Florida. The work still a big get per week for Willie catcher. Facing considering he deed committed and then you re able to get him back in note two months and some of that you didn't have a a staff. You went with the yet that the gig is this the couple scandals there with the coach been suspended. A coach being fired three kids hospitalized and they still managed to pull this saw. This seems rather extraordinary. Is it really is and making a lot of credit again goes to the beat recruiter. Jim Harbaugh and John Harbaugh at. Jack called in the best recruiter he'd ever been around that you look at Mario crystal ball. I'd be now I guess not cooperative coordinator Dick offered according to sell right now and topic of white coat stick coal from Alabama. I'm like sorry he that he would lead the number one or two recruiter in the entire country two out of the last three years. He proved his work this year in just seven weeks obviously you quit. Cody each year from Arizona but the big yet what last night. He got the nation's number one junior college up to tackle on the firm believer that at the start the tragedy in a release except start the traction control and beat up on. Getting the number. Number one -- he'll wind and huge particularly when you consider it a good year for them and number two college and it like to sign with Alabama looked like it was a down year clergy yet or restart the big time. Now I injury he got seven kids from Florida how many of those kids are elite. And is that something that can continue to be a pipeline or was that just this year because he had had so many guys on the hook for South Florida. Personally I think that's gonna slow leaks say he owed it has some connection to Florida but the longer stay away from an area the less impact yet but even looking. You know Chip Kelly potentially yet and been ordered in a while that poll slowly start to fade and so. I think Willie Taggart will always do well or practical always happy connections Joseph the connection coaches they're they're high school coach of the seven on seven coaches but he can't know. He built personal relationships because that was his you don't backyard for much of this recruiting cycle you won't quite have that impact. Going forward in terms of the big time talent he landed. A lot of those guys Stiller and not that they're not great athlete they are three star athlete or are at least. Then we're good I mean they're solid pieces and certainly better pieces that you would gonna add anywhere else. But only a couple of them were major major factors and really have like Carol ordered group. It's probably or star athlete Bruce Jensen junior. He committed Ohio State a regionally. During his junior year was walking in the whole wave rate in the Urban Meyer. And Urban Meyer to know we wise yeah what in what really bothered him he'd be committed. In that committee to Willie Taggart a quarter and click stop organ and policy packer. Yet offered from a number replace it again you indicate that opera from Alabama Florida scored eight. Polish you might meet on all the major programs and he was really had like Florida crew could probably beat it running back slash receiver. I think he'd more prone to be erratic that you would see. That's such a great serve better Urban Meyer just goes to underscore that look I. I love these coaches are sincere but it's such a difficult job and these guys are so spread standing you'd just. Images have to tell the kid what he wants to hear register Urban Meyer is one of the best in the visited that just goes to show yet Powell. And how much bull may be being spread around or to recruit pretty. Yeah I mean you're a 100% right now I'm not a real blue stars and I know generally speaking. More five starters naked into the leader higher percentage of five stars make it good for. And make it and Leah and so on and so court. But I still I like to look at the patent indicated they'd biscuit a ballplayer. And I really like unite I think coaches get so bought out it still bothered by it and we gotta get this or start it above the restart it. They watch the moment think that aren't sent out particularly when Arthur junior a year away from making an impact. Really it cuts aren't quite term Urban Meyer not knowing exactly who pictured your luck or happen. To be roaming the hallways probably east trying to concentrate on the current even the current situation. This is engineer make of the Oregonian here was on the fan. How does fans know. How they should differentiate between all these recruiting sites yet scout or rivals them twins were seven Mike what which ones that's. I like to just do a composite to be honest I think the very best being used to look at all the talent that's out. And realistically the very best option is to be knowledgeable enough about football you don't really get particular I he I'd start into I didn't think we're very good I'd be dropped down below Forestar I've seen. I'd restart it I thought the opening some work out but they were phenomenally end up being tried start so the very best thing to cap the I court. If you don't look composite outcome but he track. But I think the very testing is you know acute. Not force our scalp rivals and you know three RE SP NB port seven probably got a guy that between deal I don't think there's anyone you know they all look pretty good job. So let's talk about organ state then you know obviously organ was was the big winner but. You know from from the sound of it it sounds like Morgan State was very happy with one of the rare better classes they've had in in eight or nine years. I think Gordon state did a phenomenal job you look at Gary Anderson finally got program out where the facilities are what they need to be. They're competitive. I you know they had one or two spots available heading into this class you are heading into this final day to go in the signing day and it's a real credit to their coaching staff. They didn't want anybody they built those relationships all the kids have been committed. And he knew exactly where their kids or that they want worried about it and the guy they built a strong enough relationship that'll lead offer from US two year or wherever it may Pique didn't accept their plaque and Matt. Credit to building character that credit to building relationships that are lasting. Really exactly the type of situation you want you contrast your coaches. Say a leader my guide I know they're committed I know war or offered a YYR. I know I got to running backs and all it still works. You could trust your coaching staff going to schoolwork. They did add a restart. Linebacker can't he point I really like to meet at 60185. Count probably. Like backers see high grade. Which is becoming more prominent role packed well lately I really like to be like to hit it the cold you can drop back he's personal you can also come up laid oil it. That's exactly what you want in the pac twelve and a nice little additionally pork. For Oregon. Did you go quarterback's name. Secret Arctic the talk yet I net we have Gary Anderson on earlier Lisa of course the only signs you go guys are being knows is coming into compete. I'll what do you think handicap that race I'm what a base on hills his skill set. I'd be lord if you look in the starter yet truly I really what I really would say I know the markets may carry a corner racket and I hadn't eaten into the year. 630 pound. In high school didn't get a chance to throw the ball at all he got Idaho he's one of the little later kids. Who gets to a school within the first few weeks you realize all mania. I shouldn't be here and it wasn't because he wasn't good it can keep an exceptionally. He gambled on a cell went BJP route an organ almost immediately. Offered him security planet in and just watched its stock or up. And up and I opened the whole time you know. Jerry no infrastructure they can only hope we cannot advocate he went all the way up the junior college quarterback you hire country. And agreed that aren't there were plenty of big kind of how our site conference schools were beta Mac yet don't kind during the big year. We can all you think we're gonna be able opry way to look at a later signing day instead he stayed committed and then the other big IG he would be issued. They needed it could tackle all been down up front they got clique haven't you probably twelve keys are issued at eight years that they went the college football playoff. He got better and upbeat kind book all six sport 310 pound key content tackle. Big Ten football he knows what it takes. I I expect him to be a starter from day one so that add up front nose tackle a key piece and that may be starting quarterback. An exceptional job I organ state they had key areas that eat it went out and got their very best players at their verdict. I'd ended thanks for checking in we appreciate here on the morning show I think tomorrow. I expect.
